Structure Members

char *name;
long long int size;
char *version;
char *language;
char *os;
metalink_resource_t **resources;
int maxconnections;
metalink_checksum_t **checksums;
metalink_chunk_checksum_t *chunk_checksum;

name

Null terminated file name of the resource which corresponds to name element in Metalink XML file.

size

Length of the resource in bytes.

version

Null terminated version string which corresponds to version element in Metalink XML file.

language

Null terminated language string which corresponds to language element in Metalink XML file.

os

Null terminated os string which corresponds to os element in Metalink XML file.

resources

Null terminated array of pointer of metalink_resource_t(3) structure. This corresponds to resources element in Metalink XML file. Each metalink_resource_t(3) structure corresponds to url element in Metalink XML file.

maxconnections

This is a value of maxconnections attribute of file element. This value is usually used for upper limit of concurrent connections for the resource.

checksums

Null terminated array of pointer of metalink_checksum_t(3) structure. This field is an array because in Metalink specification, verification element can contain multiple hash elements. Each metalink_checksum_t(3) structure corresponds to hash element in Metalink XML file.

chunk_checksum

The chunk checksum(aka piece hash) for the resource. This corresponds to pieces element under verification element in Metalink XML file.
